Female doctor fell to her death in elevator accident at Lagos General hospital 

    Published By:

    Female doctor, who had weeks to complete her housemanship program fell to her death in an elevator at the General hospital in Odan, Lagos state on Tuesday, August 1.

    The deceased, Dr. Vwaere Diaso, a Babcock University graduate was on her way to pick up her meal from a dispatch ride when the elevator she was in crashed from the 10th floor of the building.

    The management of the Lagos Island General Hospital, Odan, has been dragged for alleged negligence.

    The deceased’s friend and colleagues alleged that the elevator had been faulty for sometime but the hospital management failed to repair it.

    Many people have taken to Twitter to call out the management and also shared their experience  about the building.

    A Twitter user @Big Amara, “A doctor who had just 2 weeks to complete her housemanship just died in a general hospital(Odan, Lagos island) due to poor management and negligence!!! The elevator she was in, fell from the 10th floor to the ground! The video was so painful to watch.”

    Sharing the video she wrote, “This is the video. The elevator hasn’t been working well for the past year. Whoever was in charge ate the money and the management has been patching it up despite complaints from resident doctors.

    “They are still even owing salaries of doctors that worked last year Dec but we have no one to fight for us. If you talk they threaten you with License suspension.”

    Kiky Festus who visited a friend there also wrote: “I’m so angry cause they have been complaining about this elevator for years. Even when I go visit my friend more than 2 people can’t go in it and if it stops at the 6th floor you have to use your hands to close it yourself and step back behind a line to even out your weight.

    “All she wanted to do was get her food from a dispatcher downstairs It even took them an hour to get her out of the elevator She was still conscious even with fractures, she was taken to emergency and then another delay, no blood. This country failed her.”

    One Olanrewaju Aiyepola tweeted: “Particularly aggrieved because we’ve complained for a long time about this elevator. We’ve maneuvered, managed, and prayed each time we had to use it. Empty promises will be made to fix it….till it killed one of us.”
